I'm Proud to Say I'm a Virtual Assistant


Long, long ago in a land far away (sorry, got carried away), Virtual Assistants were faced with the dilemma of convincing their clients that they were professionals and could do the work at home just as well, OR BETTER, than what was being done at the office. The illusion of a person sitting on a kitchen table with a word processor, soda can, papers spread across the table, had to be smashed. That was then and this is now.

Home-based businesses are now considered a norm and are highly respected as well. We have achieved the recognition and respect among not only our peers, but the professional world that we have long deserved. Technology, the internet, and a lot of hard work and proving our abilities has earned us the reputation that we have today. The reputation of Professional Virtual Assistant. A reputation that we can be proud of. A reputation that we should continually work to achieve and improve upon.

Our home-based offices are often like executive suites at the some of the best business offices in town. We have the latest equipment and we keep it up and running in good working order because we don’t want downtime. We stay connected to other VAs and associations so when new technology or new advancements become available, we are aware of them and can act accordingly. We decorate our offices according to our likes and needs. We value our clients and always want to go above and beyond what is required of us. Therefore, when you come to our home-office you will feel not only the professionalism of a qualified VA, but the personal touch of someone who is there to help make your business succeed.

We are proud, yes. We are virtual assistants who know that we can make a difference. We love what we do. Now if you still wonder if someone from home can do your work, just ask us. We’ll gladly tell you how we can. But don’t be surprised if we continue to tell you a lot more about not only that, but how we can do so much more for you and your business.

Sometimes it seems you can't pick up a magazine or book today or even turn on the TV without someone talking about the Virtual Assistant Industry. I couldn't be happier. We deserve this. Virtual assistants have worked long and hard to gain the recognition they are getting today and I know it's only the beginning. I'd love to share 7 reasons why I love being a Virtual Assistant. I'm also posting it on my blog and would welcome you to post some of the reasons you enjoy being a VA too.

1- My clients: I get to work with some amazing clients and help them achieve success.

2- Control over my businesss: I love to know that I have the power to make it grow and am an active part of its success. I get to choose the clients I want to work with, the hours I want to work, and most importantly I get to say no as well if something isn't a good fit.

3- The ability to be part of the VA Industry: I've been blessed to be part of the VA Industry since its inception. Every year I get to see it reach more media and get more attention. It's wonderful to see and I'm proud to be a a part of it.

4- To have the opportunity to use my skills and talents every day: I love what I do and every day I get to wake up and do it again. If you talk to most entrepreneurs they will acknowledge passion is one of the most important aspects to success.

5- There is always something new. I'm an A Type Personality so I definitely need a challenge. I love the thrill of new clients, regular clients that have become good friends, new challenges, and also having the opportunity to make a difference in someone's business and success.

6- To get to coach others and help them achieve success: In addition to publicity and marketing, I also do virtual assistant coaching. I love to be able to take a VA with just a dream and turn it into a successful business.
